All of Lucky's Dreamtime stories belong to her countries Ngkwarlerlaneme and Arnkawenyerr. This painting is inspired by the Dreamtime story of the Ilyarn or Ilyarnayt, a common variety of acacia. Lucky depicts the beautiful flower of this plant and also Tyape Atnyematye (Witchetty Grubs).
The Ilyarnayt is particularly favoured for the abundance of witchetty grubs living in the roots. They are large, tasty grubs that live in the numerous shallow roots of the witchetty bush (Acacia kempeana). They are a most important food source. To collect the grubs the aboriginal people dig at the base of the witchetty bush until they strike a root. Any swollen roots are levered up as it is a good sign there is a witchetty grub inside. Care is taken when breaking open the root so that the grub is not injured. If it is, the grub is usually eaten immediately. If not, the grubs are normally lightly roasted in coals before being consumed.
